"There's an old adage that says you can't rush progress. CAIRO, Toronto's cinematic boroque-pop outfit, couldn't agree more. It's been three years since their "Young Love" EP slipped it's way into the hearts of fans worldwide (thanks MTV) and proved that the power of the independent artist is nothing to take for granted. Presently the quintet is gearing up for the release of their debut album "A History of Reasons" and is preparing to share their emotion-drenched, orchestral sound with anyone who will listen."

Hands & Teeth:

Hands & Teeth were born from a need to do rock music a bit differently. Each member of the four-piece ensemble brings his or her genre-spanning talents and insights from former bands to create a unique brand of groove-based, harmony-laden melodic rock which spans the divide between tried-and-true eras of rock n’ roll and the cutting edge of indie pop.
